Before the 2008 season kicked off, the Observer-Reporter reported on the difficulties Avella football had with numbers. Eagles coach Frank Gray, in his first year, was forced to cancel the opening scrimmage because the team had only 11 healthy players.
Avella made it through the first four games and, not surprisingly, it is 0-4 overall and 0-2 in the Black Hills Conference.
The subject of Avella's numbers has come up when talking to several area coaches and the general consensus is the Eagles are a decent, scrappy football team considering the limitations.
Well, sadly, the troubles continue.
According to sources, Avella will take 13 players to its game Friday at Serra Catholic.
